Is anyone here instructing this weekend at the Elgin MSF class?

My little brother in law is going to be taking it this weekend there.
Just wondering if it was one of us who would be teaching.

According to the schedule, no. But sometimes instructors trade weekends/locations and it doesnt get updated, so its possible.

He's a good kid.
I was hoping his instructor would be somebody I knew (was thinking Greg taught up that way.. but maybe he is more south)

I think he will be good at this, he is an airline pilot for American Eagle and he was a flight instructor all through high school. I imagine some of those skills and the mentality will transfer well...

I probably should stop calling him a kid eh? He's like 24 or 25 now

He's never turned a wheel on a real motorcycle. During the wifes bachelor party he rode my friends 125 dirtbike in the alley and gravel parking lot by my old place - so.. he's probably ready to just test out

Fresh meat is the best. Those that are totally new are easier to teach.

Do not know those who are teaching there this weekend.
